It's an SS350. The hole for the speedo is over the throttle lever and the other factory speedo hole is plugged.

That A/C unit is not original to the car and should not be there. The firewall is non-A/C.

Good luck.

Chris,
I believe mine came from Classic Industries. I know when I got them they had just been released and I had ordered them from Bob at Camaro Specialties. I'l ask him where he ordered them from next time I am there.
Mine didn't fit well either and had to be massaged a little and the rivets are black compared to my original sill plates.  I am not real happy with them because they are too shiney compared to the originals.
The only problem with my originals is one has a ding in it. Might put them back on for Carlisle this year.

Nice to hear from you as well, Chris and thanks for the compliments. Your car would have made a great addition to the book.

If you make it to Carlisle look me up.

If I could look at the car in person I could tell if it's real BB or not. All it would take is to look at the heater box and the insert that fills in the SB heater core holes. That piece is not reproduced correctly and the real things are rarer then hens teeth.

"So nobodies got reproduction sill plates???  I'm gonna start a new thread for this to see if I get some opinions!!!!"

I have a set of the reproduction sill plates that classic sells. They look good but are really not correct.

Those sill plates are still available from GM. The package looks almost new and if both of the packages come open I would be a little suspicious. There is a site that details how to add rivets to the sill plates.

GM sells the plates for about $58.00 each.

For that much money and hype you would think that the car would be absolutely correct. Incorrect center caps, shocks and exhaust as well as a bunch of other small stuff just doesn't cut with me. Should have been 100% correct. The one inch gap in the $10 repop trunk weatherstrip looks shoddy. It's also in the wrong spot.
A buyer with zero feedback that just signed up today makes me believe the car did not go to a legit buyer. Look for it again real soon.

Originality / Re: will factory A/C work with a big block?
« on: January 29, 2008, 01:48:25 AM »
No A/C on big blocks in 1967. You might be able to use the evap box that is in your car now but I would swap it out with a 1968 BB unit just to be sure.

Originality / Re: 1970 Camaro Hurst shifter question
« on: January 27, 2008, 02:59:00 PM »
I can tell just by looking at it that the handle you pictured is not correct for a 1970 Z/28. Also the shifter body will be a Hurst Competition Plus. The shifter mounting bracket in the picture is incorrect as well.

Restoration / Re: roof rail weatherstrip

The ones I got did come from Jim at Heartbeat City but I bought them through Camaro Specialties in East Aurora, NY.

I am very happy with the way they fit on my car.

On my 67 RS I used the new latex style that is now available. I had tried the soffseal brand but the doors wouldn't close properly. The new seals are just like GM and worked and look great. The cost is twice is much but is half the hassle.

Restoration / Re: black on tailpan on ss cars
« on: January 25, 2008, 02:01:52 PM »
my father has 3 original 1968 SS/ ............ RS/SS ........and a............. Z/28 they have never been repainted because he baught them new. they are all 60% like a satin. NOT GLOSSY   at all. I just think people are getting more laxed on originality. Because if you see my fathers original cars he baught new they are totally stock and untouched. The stripes too. Partial sticker and partial 60% satin GM paint

So if I read your post correctly the Z/28's tailpanel is 60% glossy as well? That would be interseting to see.

I have the pleasure of judging with Ken Lucas at Carlisle every year and have seen his restoration work up close. You will have one fine car when it's completed.
Good luck and keep us alll posted.

Restoration / Re: 4-Speed Hole
« on: January 25, 2008, 03:41:32 AM »
The 1969 manual shifter hole in the tunnel was torch cut. In 1967 the hole for a floor shift whether manual or automatic was pressed cut and was reenforced. I believe 1968 was the same as 1967.
